RE: [Bulk] Re: JAWS latest trick

Bill,

About all I can say is that you are a lucky man. (LOL)

I can only postulate that whatever you were trying to undo was probably not
critical with potentially cataclysmic results. (LOL)

I think the undo command operates on the Murphy Principal?

Undo doesn't work only for the last command.  I've used undo to go back
several commands, as many as 6 or 7.

Hi,

Only problem with this solution is that I have done some other Word type
command *before* I discovered what the problem probably was. Undo only works
on the *LAST* command. (frownie face)

Oh, boy can't tell you how many time's I've accidentally done that, and
wondered where all the text went. Sure is nice to have undo.

Adrian:

 

sorry for the late reply.  I was in the UK from 15th June to 4th July, so I
am Catching up.  Although I took my laptop, I could not get it fixed until a
few days before my return.  Too late to worry about email and the like,
until I got back.

 

The CTRL+A command is the Windows command for highlighting all text in a
document, email message, etc, regardless as to where the cursor is in the
text.

 

The CTRL+A command, cannot be used to unhighlight text.

 

Using any of the arrow keys, page up and page down keys and the home and end
keys will unhighlight any text that is highlighted.

 

Warning!  If you have selected/highlighted any text, Pressing a key that
inserts a character, including a space character, will result in the text
that is selected/highlighted, being deleted.  If you accidentally do this,
press CTRL+Z to undo your last action and restore the highlighted text.

 

HTH

 

Sincerely:

 

Dave Durber

When I tried Laura's suggestion, the first press of control-a resulted in
JAWS saying, "Selected." When I pressed control-a a second time, JAWS said,
"Unselected." this was in an email message.

 

Perhaps it works in XP, which I have, but not Windows 7, which I know you've
advanced to. The only other explanation must be that I'm not an Anasazi!

Hi Adrian,

Yes, I gave it a try but nothing changed.

Now, even more interesting is the fact that when I am in an email and press
ctrl+A I do hear "selected" but when in a folder such as "deleted items" or
whatever I hear (nothing selected? In both cases the keystroke actually
works properly although JAWS does not think so. (LOLLOLLOL)

Oh well, maybe JAWS V12?

Did you test Laura's suggestion? I just did, and she's right. It's useful
information.

I don't think ctrl+a ever unselects anything.  I think CTRL+A always selects
everything.

Hit control a twice that way you can make sure that everything is selected
and unselected that's just my advice.  Take it or leave it.

Hi,

Again, W7 64 bit, Outlook 2007 and an HP Pavilion.

In Outlook when I press ctl+a to select all messages in the folder JAWS
dutifully reports that "Nothing selected" - but - when I do the shift+delete
and then confirm guess what, everything *WAS* selected and all is gone.

Just thought I would mention the misinformation so someone is not lulled
into thinking that nothing war really selected and makes an unfortunate
discovery. (LOL)
